USPS: Centralized mail delivery system tries to streamline delivery, reduce inconsistency

MENTOR, Ohio — A simple box that might look more at home in an apartment building is what the U.S. Postal Service says is the future of daily mail delivery.

“We’ve gone to all Cluster Box Units, at the request of the U.S. Postal Service,” said Sommers Real Estate President Rick Sommers.

He says every new development that real estate groups like his build have the simply boxed called Cluster Boxes. The Postal Service says they cut down on the cost of individual boxes, locked boxes keep sensitive mail safe and make delivery a one-stop shop.

“Obviously the post office truck doesn’t have to stop at every house, blocking traffic,” said Sommers.
